Also in the area northeast of Millau these layers are exposed between Aguessac and Rivière-sur-Tarn.
From Aguessac (from motorway exit Gorge du Tarn) use road D907 in direction Rivière-sur-Tarn. After the village go left onto a small mountain road (D190) to Fontaneille. After the village, after the footpath, go left to the Peyrelade chapel and the radiotower (near the steep cliff). Park your car at the rubbishdump, and go to the hills at the right side of the road. The ammonites are found low, the bivalves and gastropods are found higher on the hills.
A few hundred meters further, you can also try your luck at the lower slopes. In the riversides of the Tarn river near Camping van Aguessac (road N9-E11), you can find belemnites, ammonites and crinoids.Drag the map and zoom in or out for the best view of this locality.
